When Joanna Gaines designed Magnolia Home, her goal wasn’t to simply create furniture – it was to create timeless pieces that help tell your home’s unique story. The furniture is an expression of the joy of home and family. “Home is the most important place,” says Gaines. “My passion is to help people create beautiful and meaningful spaces in their home.”

Inspiration

Magnolia Home was designed exclusively by Joanna with each piece of the collection having family, aesthetic appeal and practicality in mind. Her characteristic style is evident throughout – vintage elements, country freshness and a touch of urban chic. The look is inspired, fun, friendly, simple, comfortable – not to mention affordable! Joanna wanted Magnolia Home to be a style families can live in, at a price families can afford.

“Sometimes you see a product line and you immediately say ‘yes!’. It’s a connection, a certainty that this is something that our customers will absolutely love. Magnolia Home is a perfect example. It’s unique, it’s not just another copy of a trend and it’s priced affordably. The quality and functionality are there but more than that, the ‘spirit’ is just right.” -Lori, Merchandise Manager, Stoney Creek Furniture

Every Room

Magnolia Home has pieces for every room in your home: living room, dining room, bedroom, and office, even kitchen islands and bath storage units are available. While there is an overall vintage meets chic quality to the line, each piece fits into a specific genre: Boho, Farm, French Inspired, Industrial, Primitive or Traditional. The attention to detail shows the care and craftsmanship Joanna has put into each and every design.

Magnolia Home Accessories

Speaking of detail, Magnolia Home also includes accessories and accents that really complete the look: from letter holders to metal buckets for display; from clocks to metal trays.

“There was a sign displayed in Magnolia Home’s showroom that said ‘Be silly, be honest, be kind’. That’s precisely the genuineness and warmth we want to bring to our customers. I just know that you will relate to Magnolia Home as we did!” -Lori, Merchandise Manager, Stoney Creek Furniture

All About Sectionals: How to choose the right one for your home.

February 10, 2017 by Leanne

We’re in love with sectionals. They’re super cozy, flexible and available in many modular options and configurations. Sectionals also very on trend which means you can find just about any fabric, texture and colour you want. With looks from modern to traditional, there are options to suit your space, whether it’s an urban condo or a farmhouse living room.

Let’s start with décor style.

Whether you like contemporary, traditional, transitional, industrial, country chic or boho styling, there’s a sectional for you.  Arms, legs, backs and seats are available in every possible silhouette and shape, not to mention details like button tufting or nail heads if you choose.

Then look at form and function.

Sectionals are U or L-shaped overall, but it’s not as basic as it sounds. You can get an L that’s either left or right-oriented, with either side of the letter long or short or the same length. The sides of the U can be deep or shallow, with varying widths for the dip space in between. Many different widths, heights and depths of sectionals are available.

You also need to consider the function of each side. You can get a classic sofa shape for both sides, or a sofa plus a chaise, or even a sofa plus a settee with side panel. You can also get a full reclining function or just a gentle tip on the head rest. So many options to choose from.

Now the fun part: fabric choices and colours.

Pastels, brights, florals, neutrals, geometrics, plaids, suede – you name it –  it’s available. Go bold if you like – an eclectic mix in your home is très chic; or maybe stick to timeless classics. How can a soft brown leather sectional ever be anything but perfect?

Remember, a sectional is practical…and then some.

Now is a good time to mention that sections are super comfortable and versatile. You can use either or both sides as a bed (depending on the side lengths). Plus, a sectional is an ideal room definer or divider. It creates a half wall of sorts, delineating a room or conversation area. Finally, a sectional seats lots of people easily. Think you’re short on entertaining space? Add a sectional!

Don’t forget accessories!

Sectionals are large pieces of furniture that can dominate a room. While they make a great focal point, be sure to incorporate some substantial accessories, wall hangings and a proportionately-sized cocktail table for balance…and remember the accent pillows!
